Retro Design Mitte *flat for 4* AP7

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Birkenstraße, Berlin, Berlin 10551, Germany

The Space

Experience Berlin like a local, live in a 20th century flat in a quiet but central street in one of Berlin's oldest districts. Surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants with the underground in front of the building.

We took the vintage elements of the flat and combined it with modern design and technology. You'll find Internet, a modern kitchen, a vintage bathroom with new fittings, TV, wooden flooring, build-in library and quirky features.

The neighborhood is one of the new up& coming districts in Berlin. According to one of my guest:

"Moabit/Mitte has become the new insiders' tip of Berlin. Just in front of the house are a couple of cool bars, a big supermarket and bakeries are around as well. So you have everything you need".

The quiet, courtyard facing bedroom sleeps 2 and in the big living room area you'll find another bed and a sleeping sofa. All beds and mattresses are brand new.

The place was refurbished in September. More details below:

Kitchen: brand new kitchen, fully equipped incl. coffee machine, toaster, microwave 

Bathroom: retro look with new fittings, shower, hairdryer, towels are provided

Bedroom: cosy 2 single new beds and antique furniture (wardrobe, drawer, mirror), sheets are provided

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was our first Airbnb stay and it was a good stay! The flat was real retro (70's). It is clean, fresh, quiet and there are good beds. The U-bahn in front. We were only 3 nights here but a week was better! Berlin center is 5 min with Uban and the S-Bahn is realy quick. Key pick-up and drop in the restaurant downstairs. The stairs to the 4th floor were a good work-out! We traveld by car and it was free parking in the street!

    Price vs quality is good. When you want a nice price and a good place to sleep and shower. Our stay at Marleens Retro Design flat for 4 AP7, made our trip to Berlin more than compleet! Defenately recommend this appartment!

  • What a great stay! The apartment is just lovely and Marleen dropped by with Marley to give us lots of tips on places to visit. Highly recommended!

  • Wow, a perfect place to stay in Berlin.
    We had a sunny week, Marleen was very helpful and the appartment was very calm, near the underground and supermarket.
    We highly recommend Marleen's appartment, and hope to come back one day.

  • Great plase to stay and explore Berlin. It was very clean and cosy, but you have to remember that there is 4 floors up - some people will have difficuelt to go all the way - but it is goood for healt.
    I will recomend the flat and the host(beautiful girl) to all my friends. And the little cafe' on the next corner is a must to visit.
    If you wanne explore Berlin in a few days, this place is perfect.
    LOVE from Denmark <3

  • Marleen's apartment is really beautiful! Probably one of the best place to stay in Berlin, for sure! Easy to reach, the metro is in front of the building, the area is nice and the restaurants too.
    Thank you Marleen for everything! See you soon!

  • Marlene knowledgable and helpful host.
    Weak signal on Wifi although found a hot spot.
    Broken chair at the dining room table a sad greeting and felt more boo hoo than boHo, either fix it or remove it as not a good look. Empty bookcase could be filled with more reading materials as made the apartment appear gloomy and dark.
    Comfortable chairs for evening sitting around would have been a welcome after long walking and touring all day. Had a great stay , despite these minor criticisms. dicker engel downstairs amazing Schnitzel, lovely staff.

  • Fine, clean and large apartment, but there was a lack of tools and glass in the kitchen. So cooking for 4 people is not possible.

    Response from Marleen:

    Thanks for your feedback Mogens. I added more glasses, pots & kitchenware.

  • A nice, large apartment in a good location right next to the U Bahn, some handy cafes and a supermarket. The stay was let down by the increasing realisation that the wifi promised had obviously not been functioning for some time. A crossed out message to a previous guest on our welcome note indicated it had been non-existent for a while. I now see another previous guest by another name also had trouble. The signal is there, you can connect easily but it was not functional (we tried with 4 devices) and we felt we were fobbed off and avoided until the weekend was over. The internet at the apartment was a major player in my choice of accommodation as it is vital for our work to have access to email 24 hours a day and data roaming signal was poor, as well as hugely expensive. Beware also the 8 flights of stairs to the 4th floor, you wouldn't want to be anything less than in perfect health to get up and down them.

I'm originally from Berlin and recently moved back after having spent a couple of years in London and other places. Thought it's time to return to one of the most vibrant cities in Europe.. Let's see..
